§ MR. G. C. T. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
On a question of order, Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask you whether it is in accordance with the practice of this House that an hon. Member, against whom a true Bill for misdemeanour has been found at the Old Bailey, should vote in this House pending his trial.
§ MR. J. H. DALZIEL (Kirkcaldy Burghs)
I should also like to ask whether it is not the general custom for a man to be considered innocent until he has been found guilty. ["Hear, hear."]
§ *MR. SPEAKER
I am not aware of any rule which precludes an hon. Member from voting because a charge has been made against him.
